Hi There,

I've been looking for Saito Sensei's books on the internet. I'm looking for Traditional Aikido - Vol. 1-5 and Takemusu Aidido - Vol. 1-5.

They seem to be out of print. Does anyone know if I can get them somewhere?

TIA,

Robin van der Harst

Traditional Aikido is out of print and has been for years. Good luck finding a set. Keep you eyes open on e-bay and the rare book sites and be prepared to set down your satchel to buy them.

Takemusu Aikido, except for the first volume should be available through http://www.aikidojournal.com/ . The first volume is available, but I believe only in all-Nihongo.

Regards,

Robin,

If it is any help, go to www.barnesandnoble.com, and click the "used" book tab. They're showing two used books in stock at this moment. Good luck!

Okay Thanks...

I didn't know Traditional Aikido was out of print for years.

Greg, sorry, but what is all-nihongo?

Thanks Chris, I will check it out...

Yes, I have seen the prices, and they are more than I like to spend on any publication. However, I was just trying to help Robin out in the only way I knew. I'll let him decide how he wishes to spend his money.

With best regards,

Chris

I've seen the prices too, and it wasn't really what I was planning to spend! :)

I talked to my teacher and he has the complete set and was happy to lend it to me, so I guess that'll have to do.

But thanks anyway...

There's a guy over on Aikido Journal who has a complete set for sale signed by Saito Sensei.
